The county journal, The Carmarthenshire Antiquary, formerly the Transactions, has been published annually since 1905. The Antiquary is issued free to each member and usually appears in late January. Volumes from 1905 to 1977 have been indexed and a supplementary index for 1978-1987 is appended to the rear of volume XXV (1989). Both indexes are available as separate publications (see below). A new index for the years 1988 to present is in course of preparation. The Society pursues an active programme of publishing occasional papers and monographs in furtherance of its aims to advance the knowledge of the history of Carmarthenshire and West Wales.
